In June 2021, Skoda Auto will launch the Kushaq, which will be its first foray into the mid-size SUV segment. The model has been in the Indian market for ten months and is about to get a new special edition. According to a recent media source, the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition would be introduced, with a sporty blacked-out treatment and additional bonuses.
The model’s price is expected to be revealed on May 9, 2022. The forthcoming Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition will be based on the top-of-the-line Style trim and could be available in Red or White. The front grille’s chrome surround and front bumper’s silver highlights will be replaced with a black finish. There will also be a blacked-out treatment. The blacked-out treatment will also be seen on the wing mirrors, roof and front and rear skid plates.
The SUV will be distinguished by prominent “Monte Carlo” badges on the front fenders and blacked-out “Monte Carlo” emblems on the tailgate. The new 205/55 R17 tyres will be installed to the Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition, and the alloy wheels will be inspired by the old-generation Skoda Octavia RS 245.
The biggest interior upgrade will be a new digital instrument cluster. Sporty red graphics and dual-tone Red and Black upholstery will complement the interior motif of the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition. New red inlays may also be found on the dashboard, centre console, and all four doors.
The Kushaq Monte Carlo will have a 6-speaker sound system with subwoofer, a single-pane sunroof, a tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic stability control, heated front seats, automatic wipers and headlamps, full LED headlamps, and more, just like the normal Style trim.
